Mutoh is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[2] He is the stubborn and short-tempered leader of a group of Carpenters. Mutoh is often found with his arms crossed and scoffing.


Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Mutoh is the head of the Clock Town Carnival Committee in charge of constructing the fireworks-viewing tower for the Carnival of Time. During the first days, Mutoh is in the Mayor's Office, arguing with Captain Viscen about whether or not to flee the town in the wake of the impending Moon. Link can use the Couple's Mask obtained from Anju and Kafei to stop the argument, earning him a Piece of Heart.

Most of the time, Mutoh maintains watch over the building of the tower, while the other Carpenters are working on supplies and construction. At night of the Final Day, he stands at the foot of the completed tower, after the other Carpenters have abandoned him and the town, yelling at the Moon, "If you're gonna fall, then fall already!"[3]

He indicates that he has some sons who have already fled the town.[4] He also wonders about the location of his wife (whether she has fled or gone missing is undetermined) and dislikes Kafei for going missing and compares him to his sons.[5][4]

Oracle of Ages

In Oracle of Ages, Mutoh appears with his Carpenters in the Nuun Highlands, where they are repairing a bridge that connects to Symmetry Village. However, all of his Carpenters have run off and are missing, and he asks Link to find them. Link must call for the aide of one of his animal companions to help locate them, as the landscape of Nuun Highlands is harsh and changes according to Link's companion.

The Minish Cap

Mutoh and his Carpenters appear in and around Hyrule Town in The Minish Cap. At the start of the game, they can all be found at north gate of Hyrule Town repairing the damage caused by Vaati.[6] By Fusing certain Kinstone Pieces, they will construct various buildings all over Town. Before they are found, Mutoh, Doyle, and Mack block off areas in the Eastern Hills.

These carpenters may be rough around
the edges, but they do good work.
They may seem tough, but they're
in touch with their feminine side.
